T sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

SOURCE: Whirlpool pump only buzzes.

Well there are two things....You say "buzzes?" Like pump is running "humming" & not pushing water. That would be an "airlock" in the pump & it needs to be primed.
If it's "buzzing" & pump motor is not turning (Like it's froze) you might have a bad start up capacitor on the pump that needs to be replaced. Worst case scenerio entire pump needs replacement.

SOURCE: My American Standard Whirlpool does not turn on.

Remove access panel make sure pump is plugged in some electricians put a GFI outlet under tub for motor make sure GFI did not trip. Next the switch is an air switch look for the hose going to switch is connected last you may need a new air switch which is common to fail

SOURCE: when I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on

In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Have an American standard whirlpool tub. the on/off button is stuck on on. now the only way to shut the jets off is to flip the breaker to the bathroom. how do I fix this


This sounds like the air switch in the motor is not working properly. You will need to remove the pump from under the tub to access the air switch located in a housing on the motor.
Replacement Air Switch will cost you about $20

How do you turn this thing off??


The whirlpool? Is there an air switch? When you push it does it stay on? The plastic tube from the air switch may have popped out. Hopefully you have access door.

My american standard jacuzzi tub doesnt work. It's plugged in, but the push button doesn't engage anything. It worked before I removed it to install ceramic tile around and under it.


check the air tubing coming off the back of the motor. that tubing should connect from the air switch on the motor to the bottom of the air button on the top of your tub.
if it is not connected then it will never turn on.

Pushed button to turn on whirlpool - hear motor - jets don't work


if the motor just hummed then it is likely a bad motor. you will need to replace the pump at that point. Bathtub buttons like the one you have either works or they do not. there isn't any in between areas.

Air push button does not stop the runnig motor


Check the switch and air lines. You probably hear the switch clicking but not the pump. It probably goes into an air powered solinoid for the actual switch, away from the water. Ckeck those connections.

Usually there is a safety pressure switch that requires there to be water in the tub and the pump to be running before it will allow the heater to come on. Either this switch was faulty or the controls for the tub were wired incorrectly, that's about all it could be
